Cindy is the creator of  J.O.U.R.N.E.Y. Just One person Understanding Recovery, Nurtures and Empowers You©  and IT'S ABOUT LIFE© eating disorder recovery life coaching groups and training for coaching professionals. 

Cindy started coaching adults recovering from eating disorders in the early 1990's, when coaching was not well-known, and there were few non-clinical support services for eating disorder recovering adults after treatment. Cindy personally knew how hard it was to integrate back into life (without an eating disorder) once goals were no longer treatment focused. She recognized recovering individuals could benefit from this new and different type of support.  [Read more here on the early beginning of eating disorder coaching...]. She spent the next thirteen years developing, refining and providing life/recovery coaching guidance to recovering adults in her community then became the first person to introduce life coaching globally to eating disorder healthcare professionals when she presented at The 2006 Renfrew Foundation Annual Eating Disorder Conference (Philadelphia, PA). 

Since then, Cindy has presented numerous workshops, trainings, and speaking engagements on life coaching for patients and families during treatment, transitions and recovery at international eating disorder conferences, treatment facilities, health programs, businesses and community events nationwide and in Canada. Many inpatient, outpatient, and private services now include recovery coaching and peer coaches as a standard part of care.

Today, Cindy continues to be an empowering coach to her clients across the globe, as they go through and beyond recovery. She strives to provide value-driven life coaching guidance and hope to her clients. She encourages and inspires them to be the author of their own life story. When they do this, they can turn the Process of Recovery into a Journey of Discovery.
